    Summary

    She's not safe - she'll never be safe from Fisk, but she'll still slide the latch on the chain at eye level, and she'll pull the curtains tight to block out the sun.

    The bed squeaks, and the sheets are stale from sitting idle. Karen places her gun beneath a pillow and holds onto it, finding solace in the weight and how her thumb rests against the grip. That deadbolt is another warm blanket to the thought that for maybe just a moment, she can be lucky.
    -
    Karen runs.
    She figures running will protect everyone she loves, if Fisk is after her.
    She wasn't expecting to run right into Frank.
    Not in the middle of the night.
    Not in the middle of fucking nowhere.

    Summary

    Everything changes, and nothing changes. Color matters only as another tactical advantage. The woman—his soulmate, what a fucking joke—is nothing to him.

    He had a family. A woman he loved. And now she’s gone, they’re all gone.

    Now he has a mission. That’s all he has.

    He’s not about to let anything—or anyone—get in the way of that.

    Except fate has a sick sense of humor.

    His soulmate doesn’t want to get in the way. She wants to help.

     

    Canon compliant soulmate AU where everyone’s world is black and white until they meet their soulmate. Part canon re-telling, part character study, part excessive use of color as a motif.

    Summary

    Frank shrugs, almost diffidently, as if to say he’s glad to hear it, and he still isn’t used to anyone welcoming the sight. Maybe there are some, people who are old and ready to rest and who have lived a good life, who sit up and wait for him, on the nights he chooses to venture out of the underworld and take them personally in hand. But as they stand there face to face, him dark and rugged and grim and Karen pink-cheeked, flushed, blossoms trailing from a frozen tree and grass rising from the barren ground, the contrast could not be more striking. Winter and spring, death and life, hell and heaven. Then leaf subsides to leaf, and so Eden sank to grief.

    Kastle Hades/Persephone AU.

    Summary

    Sandor Clegane tells Arya Stark to live, and oddly enough, she listens to him.

    If only she could get out of the city to do just that. It's not the best timing to decide to live, right as she's most likely to die.

     

    (Post 08x05 where Arya figures out how to be a human again in the face of shocking destruction -- mild fix-it)
